How about spending New Year in Rio de Janeiro ? This has the reputation as one of the biggest and most famous in the world which each year gets bigger, attracting even more revellers to the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Our custom tour service allows you to spend 3 nights enjoying this amazing spectacle and the option to combine it with other tours such as Iguassu Falls and the Amazon.
We realize that visiting Brazil is not cheap at New Year, so we work with you to try to maintain your budget, giving you plenty of hotel options and offering advice to produce the perfect vacation package. Below is a sample itinerary which you could take from the 29th December to the 1st of January or the 30th of December until the 2nd of January. Below are some of the hotel options that we can offer:
Day 1 – Arrival in Rio de Janeiro
After your arrival in the city of Rio de Janeiro we will meet you and transfer you to your hotel in the Copacabana or Ipanema areas of the city. Take the rest of the day to relax and enjoy the famous beaches on your doorstep and pre New Year nightlife to get warmed up.
Note: The order of your tours will depend on your chosen dates and local factors, the schedule may vary a little from that listed below. Whatever the schedule we provide you will have a fantastic time, guaranteed!
Day 2 – Tour the Corcovado, the White Christ statue
Today we will collect you from your hotel for a spectacular half-day tour to one of the new Wonders of the World, the Corcovado, or White Christ statue. This huge statue towers over the city of Rio and the views are incredible. A railway takes you up to the top of the mountain for access to the viewing platforms from where you may use up all your camera memory! The afternoon will be yours to hit the beach or whatever you like.
In the late evening the fun starts as thousands and thousands of revelers pour onto the famous beaches of the Copacabana and Ipanema to party and see in the New Year in great style, something you will never forget!
Day 3 – Recovery and the Sugar Loaf Mountain
After recovering from your party hangover, in the afternoon we will take you to see the other very famous Rio de Janeiro landmark, the Sugar Loaf Mountain, which you will ascend by a two stage cable car. The views from this site are also incredible so make sure you have plenty of space on your camera memory card again. As an extra treat (with an extra charge of course!) to you could fly by helicopter from the 1st stage of the cable car ascent, around the Corcovado in the distance. It is not cheap but how spectacular are the views!
Day 4 – Farewell to Rio and home / onward
Today you bid farewell to Rio and we will transfer you back to the airport for your flight home or to connect with other tours with Escaped to Latin America. While you are in Brazil it would be a shame to not visit Iguasu Falls, Salvador or the Amazon for example.
